The cranberries add a burst of color and flavor.

Top Review by Katie224

This dish was a great accompaniment to pork. As other reviewers suggested, I cut back significantly on the brown sugar. It was still quite sweet, partly because I used sweetened dried cranberries since they were on hand. It was very easy to throw together, and leftovers were good, too! Thanks.
